Activities Bulletin
August 2020 (Tentative)


If you’ve joined Chicago Mensa Meetup, also check out the August Calendar, which may have additional events posted that are not in the August ChiMe (when it becomes available). (And if you haven’t, please consider signing up for this great tool — an active Mensa number will be requested to verify your Mensa membership before you can be added to our CAM Meetup group.) Meetup will have the same RSVP contact information that is on our website and in ChiMe. On Meetup, even though events may have an RSVP option, a few CAM event coördinators are not members of Meetup. You may RSVP there to let other CAM Meetup members know you are attending, to easily add the event info to your calendar, and to set up notifications for the events, but you should always contact the CAM event coördinator as specified.

In addition to the events listed below (which includes all those listed in ChiMe and usually all those listed on Meetup, some area groups and the youth-related groups have their own closed Facebook group where they may publish events and details of events which are not included on our website. Contact South Suburban Coördinator Jeudi or South­west Area Group (SwAG) Coördinators Kevin and Steve for information on how to join their respective Facebook group. Contact Gifted Youth Coördinators Stacey/Stephen or the Teen Coördinator to join their Facebook groups.
